11 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus in Taraba State Orientation camp.

Taraba State Commissioner of Health, Innocent Vakkai said this while briefing journalists in Jalingo, saying the corps members are asymptomatic and are responding to treatment at an isolation centre in the state.

He said;

”So as part of the guidelines of the presidential task force on COVID-19 on the control of COVID-19 in Nigeria, they asked every state to carry out mass testing of all corps members present in camps and in Taraba state eleven corps members tested positive, but all of them were asymptomatic, that is to say, they are not showing symptoms.

”Since they are positive, the onus lies on the health authorities to ensure that they were quarantined.

”Based on the information I have so far received, they are all doing well and will soon reunite with their family as the camp closes.”
